Students in the Barbering Program spend the first 450 hours learning theory and practical assignments on mannequins and models. As the students progress in knowledge and skill, they transition for the last 450 hours to the Student Salon, where they work on members of the public under the supervision of licensed New Jersey educators. PB Cosmetology Education Centre issues a comprehensive kit and textbook package to all students.


We incorporate guest artists, projects, and field trips into the program. Students will visit barbershops locally and also will travel to the International Beauty Show in New York City. Guest artists give lectures and special demonstrations on live models.


Students will visit local barbershops and have an opportunity to attend Barber Expos and the International Beauty Show in NYC.  Students also complete a project on infection control.
